May is Older Americans and Adult Abuse Prevention Month

Older Americans Month: Powered by Connection May 2024

Older Americans and Adult Abuse Prevention Month 2024

Older Americans Month (OAM) is celebrated every May and is a time for us to acknowledge the contributions and achievements of older Americans, highlight important trends, and strengthen our commitment to honoring older adults in our community.

This year’s theme, Powered by Connection, highlights the impact social connections have on our health and overall well-being. 

May is also Adult Abuse Prevention Month. Adult Protective Services investigates reports of abuse, neglect, or exploitation of adults and our goal is to protect older adults and incapacitated adults. Reports of abuse, neglect or exploitation can be made by calling 703-324-7450. Reports can be filed for people who live alone, with relatives or who are residents in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals, or group homes. Learn more about Adult Protective Services.
